The Mercato West restaurant is a great place to be for lunch and dinner. Its food is great and includes a wide variety of pizzas, appetizers, pastas, and salads. The food is a little bit pricey;it ranges between 15 to 23 dollars per dish. Its would be great for two romantic couples because of its decoration. Overall, I think that... More

Found the scallops in linguine overlooked and dish needed something. Asked for Fresh Parmesan and was shocked to learn there was a $3 charge. I know it is the real Parmesan but really?? Lamb...

We live nearby and drop in for dinner from time to time. Great food and service. They have a wonderful list of Italian wines and their team are very knowledgeable about the various vintages. It is on the expensive side, but it is a wonderful Italian place with a nice open kitchen and market feel.

On occasion, we have dinner on the "casual" side (where the market is located) of Mercato West, called Pizzavina. They do not take reservations in this part of the restaurant. The menu has great selections...several choices of pizzas, appetizers with numerous choices of pastas, priced at roughly $15. The various pastas we have tried are tasty, hot and delicious. Service...

We popped in to grab a quick bite and I was impressed. We sat on the more "relaxed" side and still had amazing service and wonderful food.

Always a great date night in the burbs. Great service and food. Portions are actually a touch big for a couple so make sure to clarify that. Good wine selection. Sitting at the bar is a treat. Lots of energy from the engaged kitchen staff.

Last October my husband and I celebrated our 25th Wedding Anniversary. We had a tight budget, but had family members coming from out of town to help us celebrate our day. We contacted Mercato West and were treated so well. We never felt that because we had a tight budget that our evening would reflect that. Instead, we were given... More

We had a gift certificate and so visited Mercato West location on 85th. They have an informal pizza side and a more formal dining side which was closed ... but we had the same menu available. The calamari were lightly coated and good. There were good about gluten free dishes. I had the rib appetizer which was ample. The Caeser... More

Mercato West is always a great spot for a date. Its always busy and I love the energy the open kitchen gives off. The service is always consistent, but most importantly the food is exceptional I felt like I was back in Italy. So happy to have Mercato West in my area, not cheap but you get what you pay... More
